No Video Aloha And Comeback Special Re-releases

BMG has opted to start off with DVD only, as the VHS market worldwide is nearing extinction. It’s virtually a sin to watch this glorious material on VHS anyway! Still, BMG and EPE are discussing possible means of addressing the demand that will continue for Elvis on VHS.

Not available in VHS, then keep them for yourselves (BMG & EPE)!! I don't like to be rejected that way but unfortunately some do take pleasure in rejecting others and think they reinvented the wheel...! Money makes the world go round, as they say! If rejecting is the new way of living then let's reject everything that was invented before 2004. But remember that probably in just a few years or months or maybe seconds... from now, new technologies will probably "reject" actual technologies. After 2004 will come 2005 and 2. Anyway we already have all those on "NBC TV Special" and "Jan. 12th and 14th Aloha". When no one else can understand us... This is my opinion and I repeat my opinion!

To BMG and EPE and anyone else concerned: VHS market is nearing extention? I do not intend to buy those two re-releases (because that is what they are) on DVD format.
Why is it that those money makers are always rejecting a certain part of Elvis Aaron Presley' fans? I have owned video recorders (RCA brand) since 1979 (as they became available starting 1983 all through the world) and I always had a real satisfaction of watching my family or vacation or excerpts (filmed by myself) of 14 Elvis Aaron Presley concerts videos and I still do. And I do not intend to get rid of all those gems (these are my own, people) just because there is a brand new video format on the market that they call DVD...I know that it is possible to transfer them into the DVD format but everyone should know here that the result is a loss of quality... What is it that we should get rid of or abandon this or that because of money makers? Those people who think that they are eternal and live just in that false thinking, they will be rejected themselves sooner or later by future generations... It is not pleasant to live in that particular kind of "thinking" people! Anyway we already have those video documents on "NBC Comeback Special", "Aloha from Hawaii" (Jan. 12th & 14th versions), bootlegs, etc... For those people (BMG & EPE and others concerned) who say that "It is virtually a sin...(prudish people here...) to watch this glorious material on VHS!", I will retort this way: "Don't you remember when the VHS video format became available how you were completely happy, satisfied, amazed, etc..." Same thing goes for vinyl single, extended play or long play recordings of Elvis Aaron Presley! With a real good care of those records and a real good turntable and caring users, we can enjoy them as much as any other kind of record players.
Now let us understand here that I am not at all against new technologies but I just do not like to be rejected that way as I like to be respected just as I am trying to respect others! Of course this is my opinion and I do maintain it!

I can live with that, we are living in 2004. Almost everybody has a DVD player these days, if you don't you can buy one for less than 50 Euro. And than you buy That's The Way It Is and open your eyes and ears: picture and sound (5.1), it looks like it was recorded yesterday. Welcome to 2004.

What about MY opinion on that subject, opinion that I did send this afternoon?

Video is just VHS or anything related and everybody understands that. As well as the word 'stereo' relates to either any music stereo system or stereo sound. We're not Latins, we're English :)

Video is a latin word which means 'I see' and refers to image. It is a common mistake in most languages to associate 'video' with the first medium which brought image into homes : the video-cassette, of which only the VHS format is still alive for the general audience.
But as most DVD's are actually DVD Video's (as they are labelled if you look closely), they will of course contain image (video).
So 'No Video Aloha And Comeback Special Re-releases' is an inedequate statement. But we still love you ElvisNews... and the guys who run it......;-)
